Taylor Swift ‘confused and scared’ by own brain……..

The dress that broke the internet…….that is how it has been described. As per the previous post this is a variation on a theme regarding biological determinism.  Taylor Swift recently commented on the illusion…….


So what colour is it?


Neuroscientist Bevil Conway stated ‘What’s happening here is your visual system is looking at this thing, and you’re trying to discount the chromatic bias of the daylight axis.’  Thus, people who perceive the surrounding area as dark are likely to see the blue in the dress as white and the black colours as gold. It all just depends on the manner that the brain perceives and processes colour.

Jay Neitz, a University of Washington neuroscientist stated  ‘I’ve studied individual differences in colour vision for 30 years, and this is one of the biggest individual differences I’ve ever seen.’ He sees gold on white.
